Title: Iron Flower
Series: Black Witch Chronicles #2
Author: Laurie Forest
Elloren Gardner and her friends were only seeking to right a few wrongs, but their actions have propelled them straight into the ranks of the realm-wide Resistance against Gardnerian encroachment. As the Resistance struggles against the harsh rulings of High Priest Marcus Vogel and the Mage Council, Elloren begins to realize that none of the people she cares about will be safe if Gardneria seizes control of the Western Realm.
With tensions heating up in Verpacia, more and more Gardnerian soldiers continue to descend upon the university…led by none other than Lukas Grey, now commander of the newly rebuilt Fourth Division base. Though Elloren tries to keep him at arm’s length, Lukas is determined to wandfast to her, convinced that she has inherited her grandmother’s magic—the prophesied power of the Black Witch. As his very nearness seems to awaken a destructive power inside her, Elloren finds it more and more difficult to believe that she’s truly powerless, as her uncle always claimed.
Caught between her growing feelings for the rebellious Yvan Guriel and the seductive power offered by Lukas Grey, Elloren must find a way to stay true to what she knows is right and protect everyone she loves…even if that means protecting them from herself.
It’s all heating up for Elloren and her crew! It was equally heartbreaking and heart-warming at the same time! I’m getting so obsessed with this series!
Honestly there were some stuff in here that was hard to stomach. The majority of Gardnerian’s are total bigots and I hated everything about them!
Now characters!! I didn’t love Elloren in the first book but in this book I did, she’s grown and she has grown on me!
Diana and Rafe make my life. I love them and if they are not endgame I will cry big, fat tears!
Yvan and Lukas…..gaaaah, as in the first book I still love both love interests. Why is this happening to me? Whhhhhhhy?
So the story….I don’t really want to say anything about the plot but it was full of action, scheming and beautiful friendships.
That bombshell near to the end! I literally cannot get enough so I’m moving onto the next book!
